5G is in Danger of Being Oversold – IEEE Spectrum

https://spectrum.ieee.org/telecom/internet/5g-is-in-danger-of-being-oversold It seems that 5G has become a technology savior. Proponents tout the poorly defined wireless technology as the path to virtual reality, telemedicine, and self-⁠driving cars. But 5G is a buzzword unleashed by marketing departments. In reality, 5G is a term that telecommunications investors and executives sling around. Millimeter-wave spectrum is freely available for

What to expect from Mobile World Congress 2018 | TechCrunch

https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/12/what-to-expect-from-mobile-world-congress-2018/ The world’s largest phone show is set for Barcelona later this month. Few things are certain yet. It seems pretty clear that 5G will once again be taking center stage. Samsung announced its plans to launch its flagship at the event.

Finland is the Mobile Data Capitol of the World – IEEE Spectrum

https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/telecom/wireless/what-the-finnish-obsession-with-mobile-data-says-about-5g It seems that we really need 5G in Finland before 4G slows down too much due high use of it. Several factors make Finland a potential sandbox for 5G developers: the average person in Finland used about 20 gigabytes (GB) of mobile data in December 2017, a dramatic rise from the 2016 average of

Evolution of Mobile Communication from 1(G) to 4G, 5G, 6G, 7G …

http://vitorr.com/post-details.php?postid=2615 The cellular wireless Generation (G) generally refers to a change in the nature of the system, speed, technology and frequency. Each generation have some standards, capacities, techniques and new features which differentiate it from the previous one. Now 5G is hot technology at the top of the hype cycle. But that’s not the end

Some parts of the 5G standard are close to being finalized, but nothing has been ratified yet.  Furthermore, many of the constituent technologies (e.g., mmWave RF, beamforming, MIMO, etc.) are

But there is still a long road ahead.
